Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls
Easy enough to let the kids join in the fun of making these sweet treats.
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups creamy peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
3 cups crispy rice cereal, crushed
1 cup semisweet miniature chocolate chips
2 (12-ounce) packages semisweet chocolate morsels
- In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, rice cereal and miniature chocolate chips and mix well with impeccably clean hands.
- Roll mixture into 1-inch balls and place onto a parchment or waxed paper-lined baking pan and place in the freezer.
- In a double boiler, over simmering water, melt semisweet chips, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth.
- With a fork, dip the frozen balls in melted chocolate and return to paper-lined baking pan. Place in freezer for 5 to10 minutes until the chocolate has set. Store the balls in an airtight container at room temperature.
Makes about 4 dozen candy balls.
